Skills we are developing in English

This printable worksheet works to help students practice many different skills in a fun way. By cutting and pasting, young learners practice fine motor and cognitive skills. These are important for developing minds and bodies, as they foster critical thinking and action.

Incorporating tools like scissors and glue allow kids to build hand-eye coordination as they cut out each animal and paste them on the page.

ESL and English language learners also practice cognitive skills such as:

  • Recall or memory by reviewing each action word
  • Thinking and early problem solving abilities
  • Matching – Pictures of actions and words
